Dr Barry Rosen - University of Toronto, Canada

Using Training modules for radical hysterectomy, consisting of pre and post-tests, power point and video presentations of the procedure, node dissection and complications including bladder, ureter and vessel injuries, a programme was developed in order to teach doctors how to perform this radical procedure.

Dr Barry Rosen talks to ecancer at AORTIC 2013 in Durban, South Africa about the development of this course in Kenya and how surgery is an essential part of the treatment of stage 1 cervical cancer. In Kenya, there are very few oncologic trained surgeons. This program demonstrates a strategy to train surgeons in the surgical management of cervix cancer and provides an education model that can be applied to others cancers.
